Diplo should have his own show on CNN. The DJ/producer/label head’s take on gun control may be one of the sanest we’ve heard in months. Via Pitchfork:
“If thomas jefferson + the founding home boys knew we would kill children with assault rifles they probably would reconsidered 2nd amendment… But in 1776 tyranical govt was an issue.. In 2012 its mental health… everyone trying to say they need guns to protect themselves from the govt. Have fun with ur assault rifle when they drop a nuke on ur house… We need to give our kids nukes to protect them from other kids. Nukes for everyone!”
Seriously, Diplo needs to add punditry to his already-diverse resume.
